This is a very simple eatery right in the centre of Brussels. The noodles are very good but the soup was tasteless ,no vegetables in cooking,just water... May be acceptable only for lunch. Service is very poor.

Had lunch here. Noodles are hand-pulled and made fresh. The texture is not quite as chewy as in China and the broth not as flavorful, but both are really good for Europe. The dumplings are quite good too. Overall they clearly give in a bit to local European tastes, but it is as authentic as you're likely to find in... More

Visit highly recommended during sunny day (small terrace, lovely tables, comfy chairs, inside slightly too hot any time of year, interior typical for asian restaurant). I am regular guest during lunch deals (6.5e for solid portion of rice & chicken, beef, etc). Haven't tried any soup yet, looked yummy on other tables. Homemade noodles are absolute highlight! Possible to take... More

Don't be put off by the look of the restaurant. It could use a bit of design touch, and especially good air conditioning. But with the noodles you will not be disappointed. Fresh home-made noodles made in front of the guests, and traditional taste are worthwhile visiting this place. Prices are on low range.

Besides being the best noodles in downtown Brussels without doubt you get to see them being prepared and cooked live in front of you. Upstairs is a bit hot in summer but worth it once you start digging in the soups or fried noodles on offer.

The service is pretty bad here. I like the noodles which are above average but they aren't spectacular. The portions are pretty good for the price. I used to come here frequently when I lived in the area; however I'm not sure I would trek across the city for the noodles as they aren't super amazing. They hand pull the... More

I went there with my family (wife and 3 kids), we ordered for example, noodles with meat (not bad as I think that the meat was not fresh) and a cantonese rice (good as it was fresh coocked).

this is the ryanair of chinese eateries in the area, seemingly cheap (and it is if you stick to the noodles, no extra, no special sauce that brings nothing else), but supplements abound. Besides if you stray (e.g fried rice instead of noodles) the quality of the dish is compromised as their rice is nothing special and overpriced. Slow, reluctant... More

Nothing much to say about that place. Main offer is the local noodles that they prepare on location. Pretty tasteless (tried several preparations). It's cheap, fair enough.

and actually, it's a DIVE bar but....such a good hand-made noodles are not easy to find. Just close your eyes and eat! Friendly service and fair prices KEEP GOING!
